'll send it back to youm. >> thank you, lara. >>> back out to sam, walk me through the science here, how long could they be on alert in hawaii? >> dan, first of all, as soon as that earthquake happened, knowing that it's 7.7, they did all of the right things. they put the warnings out, thinking that may this would be a bad run of waves. evacuating those lower levels of hawaii were a very good idea. so, you e initially think that first wave would run away from that, remember, this is a subsiding zone, one plate is underneath another plate. a little wave or two and one or two, three, in this case four waves went out and went toward hawaii and down the coast of california as well. now, normally, you would look for the bigger waves and the bigger tsunami problems, at an 58 or 9, they did the absolute right thing by getting those sirens out. these waves have been traveling, like two to four feet in many locations, you can't give everyone the all-clear until the entire system said that the water has traveled. until the buoys have said it's all calm you can't give the all clear. there may be mo
. >> this is both from the same gun. >> science is so intricate, scientists can determine if a tool was used to make a bomb or alter a firearm or to construct a homemade silencer. here analyst matched copper wire to the wire of an exploded bomb. these fires belonging to a suspect match markings of a tool used to jimmy a lock. this examiner says tools are like fingerprints. >> each tool has a surface leaving marks on items. >> under his watch criminals can no longer get away with erasing numbers. >> i use methods to restore numbers and able to see what the original number is. >> here at the lab hard to get fingerprints nor problem. this bottle is placed in a chamber with super glue fumes. a dye stain is added to items placed under a laser that i will lup naits objects, revealing prints on the body. analysts can lift fingerprints from just about anywhere. >> we have everything from garbage bags to paper forms. kit be anything they've seen from forensics. >> and and one might say you just can't get away with anything anymore. >> this is time for another check on the forecast now. >> we're going to star

on on this sunday morning. let's get it back out to sam. sam, talk us through the science here. how much longer should they be nervous in hawaii this morning? >> well, the good news is, dan, that they did everything right here. i mean when you get a 7.7 on the western coast of canada, and you've got nothing but open water between it and hawaii, and this was a subsidence kind of quake, which means the plates are lying underneath each other. the other kicks the plate up. acts like a splash or flipper and creates a wave, if not just one wave, they thought it was four waves or think it's four waves as we've been counting them and have the tsunami warning center. all the buoys mean that those at the coastline are able to monitor the lift in the water, so the buoys got a tail underneath it and the sensor knows how high that wave is. we know they could have been very high. they could have been eight-foot waves but they weren't. anywhere from 6 inches to 2 feet to 4 feet as we've been able to monitor them. the good news. we've seen them move through and usually more than one and been able to watch them
